On Wednesday, September 16th, Gordon Smith and the Codesters team presented at Teachers College EdLabs.
Our talk elicited many interesting comments, such as one from user jagnitti (@02:59): With that logic, it’s also important for all adults to learn coding, too, or else get squeezed out of the job market by these young whippersnappers!
Other users, such as tzaffi (@05:30) philosophized: In principle, anything you can do with a regular programming language can be done with a block language as well. But….since in industry, standard text based programming is still standard, it makes sense to expose students to both kinds of programming.
Have a look at the vialogue and feel free to drop us a comment.
